They say that Rome wasn't built in a day, and apparently neither was Venice. In this brief walkthrough for Rise of Venice, you'll get the tips necessary to rise from a lowly shopkeeper to the biggest financial power in the Mediterranean. Personally I've never been one for pure economic sims--toss in some combat and make it a true 4X, then I'm interested. That said, the level of realism and research here is impressive. But were all the Renaissance cities really so close together?

- Kalypso Media USA, Inc. is today pleased to make available a new trailer for its merchant/political simulation - Rise of Venice
. Becoming a powerful figure in the Renaissance meant first building up your wealth, and in this new walkthrough, we are giving viewers an in-depth look at the game's economic and trading systems.
Download the trailer now, and get a first-hand look at how to use the game's mercantile system to become an economic juggernaut as you rise up the ranks on your way to becoming a financial and political leader in Renaissance-era Venice.
Venice was at the peak of its power during the Renaissance and was viewed as a city of decadence, beauty and intrigue. Renowned as the linchpin of civilization and the cultural centre of Europe, Venice was the most important trading post between Western Europe and the eastern stretch of the Mediterranean Sea. It was also the stage for political corruptions and clandestine dealings.
This is where your story begins. As a young man striving for success, power and wealth and with the support of your family, you begin to build up a trading empire across Genoa, Tripoli, Rome, Alexandria, and Constantinople in addition to many other significant cities from the Renaissance. As you progress through the ranks of Venetian society, increasing your power with smart trading moves and calling in the occasional favor, you can begin to assemble your own fleet. With this you will start to build up new production facilities and test yourself in challenging sea battles where you will face off against pirates as well as political enemies.
